In our quest to build using natural resources and recycled (salvaged) materials, we adopted the techniques that the local African folk use in homemaking. Whether using the traditional natural building methods of rural Africa or the shanty town techniques of recycling in the ghettos, all our buildings are built using eco principles. 

Please note that our rooms do not have any electrical plug points or TV facilities.  The bath & shower are outdoors and composting toilets (modern-day long-drops) are away from the rooms.
